  2. I completely get why some want Cotts gone but I don't think another manager coming in would make any difference other than shifting some players around in different formations and maybe giving other players a chance. I don't personally feel the current squad in whatever formation is good enough. It might just about be good enough to avoid relegation but that's it. Any new manager would need exactly the same as Cotts. New players. I just hope we can get some in before it's too late. God knows what happened that the summer transfer window went spectacularly wrong but we really need to move on and focus on what is in front now. Right now I think a change of manager would be even more disruptive. They've got to focus on getting some players, stay in the division, add in the summer aswell and then we will see where Cotts can take them.

  3. Thanks for everything Steve, the memories especially...but I'm in Cotts out camp now. Shambolic last 4 months ran cannot be accepted.

  4. Heaven forbid our players get wind of any new players coming in, this could upset our current form and nobody wants that. If I was him I would be singing the names of any potential new players, maybe then the current squad would get the required rocket up the bum they need!!

  5. Right about what exactly? You were a pessimist before, you still are; you wanted Cotts out, i think you said that before, and you still want him out. Criticism or fact matters little; I do not see any reason to attempt to be deferential given its your own opinion. You look more smug than anything. Odd. Go and enjoy new year.. more things in life than football. There. Cheer up, its not the end of the earth.

  8. For me, the failure to make subs is the final straw. If we're playing like we are, and the manager isn't even prepared to take risks that might improve things even when there's nothing to lose, there really is nothing else to say. I don't want us in league one next season and that's where Cotts is taking us.

  10. I know it is easy to jump up and down when your get hammered again. But the reasons have been evident for months , the goodwill of last season keeping SC in a job. But change is needed, I am sad to say. Sad because we all wanted him to prove his ability at this level. He has been found wanting in too many areas. His stupid belief 5-3-2 will work at the core of his failure. He has to go, as we are headed for L1 in a new stadium.

  11. Quite a few people have said to me," what did you expect in a tougher league this season" Well my answer is a bloody lot more than what I've seen this year to be honest.I knew it would be tough but this is a getting painful now.

  12. Can't help wondering if Hargreaves Lansdown have made their billions by sticking with traders who always got it wrong and just made excuse after excusefor their failure. In his business Mr Lansdown hasn't thought twice about ditching a loosing player, maybe he ought to have the decency to apply the same rules to the club too.

  14. He didn't join us but he had the choice. He would have been more certain to not join us if we hadn't asked. I'd rather we ask & get turned down than not bother.

  19. So, it is Burnley again then... but... I'll tell you now and I'll tell you firmly I don't never want to go to Burnley What they do there don't concern me Why would anybody make the journey. John Cooper Clarke does not support City though so a journey has to be made by the faithful to try, probably against poor odds, to help our lads on the pitch get a result we can be proud of. You may read a little of Burnley, the place, in the earlier thread which had little about the club so i am gonna attempt to put that right here below.. Burnley were founded in 1882 from Burnley Rovers, a Rugby Club, and entered the Football League, as founder members, in 1888. They finished 9th in their first season and had an average attendance of 4,200. Burnley have won the top tier title on two occasions in 1921 and 1960 but their highest average attendance was 33,600 in the 1948 season. Indeed their halycon days ran from 1948 through 1971; residing uninterrupted in the top flight with average attendances of around 23,000. That fell away dramatically from 1971, inspite of a brief return to the top flight in the mid seventies, when they fell to the 4th Division and remained in the lower divisions until 2010; a similar sojourn to that being experienced by City. Burnley almost slipped into the Conference in 1987; having to win their last match to remain in the Football League. They did so beating Orient and sending Lincoln down. Burnley have won the FA Cup once, in 1914, just before WW1 broke out with a 1-0 win over Liverpool, at the old Crystal Palace, and have been runners up on two further occasions in 1947 and 1962. Burnley's first top flight title win in 1921 was the first time a club had gone the entire season as 'the original invincibles'; 30 league matches unbeaten in a smaller top flight and this stood until 2003-4 season when Arsenal too remained unbeaten all season for a remarkable 38 matches. Steve Cotterill of course managed Burnley and presided over lower mid table finishes for over 3 seasons. Owen Coyle we will recall took them back into the promised land perhaps finishing what Steve had started; some might argue! Harry Potts is probably considered Burnley's most successful manager overseeing a league title and a number of consistently close near misses in all competitions over two spells with the club. However, many might argue current incumbent Sean Dyche who spent a few fairly un-noteworthy seasons with City has done a very good job. He remains on course for them to be in the mix come the end of the season. However many City fans make the long round trip journey today we all salute you. Remember that your voice can really make the difference. In my many away days I fail to remember one single outing where the City faithful were quiet, quite the opposite in fact. White Big Tone seems to have gone off the radar we already know that Burnley is not exactly Barcelona or Barbados nor even Bristol, John Cooper Clarke reminds us of that. All I will say is keep an eye out for and be careful of.... Burnley 3 City 2 .. i think that is the first time this season i am predicting a loss.. 2-0 down at half time, roar back to 2-2 and then a last gasp scramble in front of our goal and some sort of own goal possibly not tap in... sound familiar? UTC nonetheless.

  21. Despite what good or bad it may do, how do you keep a manager that has won 4 games in 25 with the worst goals scored record after giving up 4 goals in 20% of those games? A loss wouldn't have made me want him gone but the manner of it changes my mind. The club will go no further under the man. Thanks for the good times but we need more flexibility in every facet of the club.

  25. Had enough now, think it's time for us to let Cotterill go. I know whoever comes in will not be able to assess and buy in January, at least not well enough but I think right now we need a motivator, a man manager and Cotterill just isn't that. He's great when he's got a motivated bunch but the last few months shows he can't motivate and use said players to maximise the potential we have when they're down. If we get relegated we'll lose Kodjia, Baker will be a 100% no chance of signing (although I can't see him staying based on our performances anyway) and we'll be back where we started with a thinner and less talented squad. I think we need to act before it's too late, just as we've done in the past.

  29. Do you think that possibly the players are tired, after all no changes from Saturday, or are they simply not playing fo SC anymore?

  35. City to win 1 - 0 today against the odds and defy all logic. Wilbs with the winner, then he'll get sent off for having a go at Sean Dyche (what we didn't realise is that they have a long-standing feud). COME ON YOU BLOODY REDS, TIME TO STOP MUCKING ABOUT AND SHOW THIS DIVISION WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT!!!!

  41. Everyone very pessimistic, but worth pointing out they've suffered a real dip in form lately. Well beaten at Hull on boxing day and in their last 8 games they've only picked up 7 points (W1 D4 L3). An identical record to ourselves
